Tools For Working Wood is a rather nice and trusty source for Woodworking Tools and materials.  On one of their blogs, they have been putting out PDFs of a wonderful old magazine full of ways that things have been made.  Issue 110 of Work Magazine has an article with a listing and illustrations of tools the author, J.W. Briggs, considered appropriate for making violins. The instructions are perhaps a touch sparse but all in all it is a delightful article.  Issue 114 of Work Magazine continues the article as does Issue 118.   Issue 118 details his varnish recipe so it is of special interest.

My yet-unfinished violin making book, posted as it becomes available is here:

Looking forward to more of that.  I've read all of it that you have available so far including the varnish chapter which isn't there now.   The rewrite of that will be interesting to see.

This is a long shot, but on this forum, someone once posted a link to a luthier who I believe also had a violin making school. He has some really nice videos, he was very talented and worked fast and precise which was very impressive.  Also his video showed him making excellent us of light or a light source to show the violin contours as he worked.  Unfortunately, I can't find this link again.  I want to say he is Spanish or Italian, but I may be getting this mixed up with another video. 

 

I also remember him discussing the differences in students that came to his school, and he said that they encourage everyone who wants to learn, but in the days when you learned as an apprentice, many who are students now, would have been turned away, as they wouldn't have had some basic skills, I think he used curiosity, or persistence to work through the challenges of violin making.

 

It was very interesting and I'd like to see it again.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks Uncle Duke,

 

It was Davide Sora!  Those were the videos that I was looking for, although the one about the school must have been something or someone else!  I've got them bookmarked now,

 

Much appreciated.
